Those of you just waking up need to know that the MLB season opener is underway in Japan. A's vs. Mariners. Ichiro leading off in his homeland. Goosebumps for those of us raised on baseball. Only problem? You can't watch this game live via your cable provider. Want to watch it live? Gotta order MLB.tv. And the divide between baseball and the NFL/NBA just keeps widening. Oh well, you can watch the replay starting at 9 a.m. EST. Let's get rolling!
Our sources continue to work their sources, but word on the street at Tampa Rays camp is that short-legged mack daddy Don Zimmer has new arm candy for the 2012 season. Just look at that smile coming from a guy walking around town with Playboy Playmate Jaime Edmondson on his arm. Just flaunting it in the face of all the old coots still married after 61 years. You have to imagine being Don Zimmer is a helluva life. Women just throwing themselves at you. JUMP!
Ladies, your baseball dream has come true. The Texas Rangers have finally figured out what you want to eat during a game in the middle of August when it's like 115 at Rangers Ballpark. Here it is, the 2-foot hot dog that'll set you back $26. The silver lining is that this meat missile is meant for two consumers. Imagine racing your husband/boyfriend/partner to the middle. So. Much. Fun! JUMP!
Via:Red Sox pitcher Bobby Jenks is facing DUI charges after deputies say he struck two vehicles in the parking lot of Babes strip club in Fort Myers early this morning. Jenks, 31, was pulled over in a white Mercedes SUV near the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Colonial Boulevard for driving erratically, according to a Lee County Sheriff's Office report. Deputies said Jenks said he was "all over the roadway" because he had taken too many muscle relaxers.
Still trying to figure out if this Phillies bro wet shat himself or if this was just a case of being a moron and sitting on wet outfield grass during yesterday's Yankees game. Yes, this is the kind of sh*t that mesmerizes us on a Friday before hitting Happy Hour. In March Madness news, kudos for Indiana. Why? Because they have the balls to push the basketball up and down against Kentucky. Might have lost, 102-90, but still deserves our appreciation. Let's get rolling!
Shouldn't there be a marketing meeting between Hooters and MLB where the sides come together for a campaign to put Hooters girls down the line at all spring training games? Is there a logical reason to watch past the 5th inning of these games. That's the only reason we're still watching at 6 p.m. on a Friday night. Totally want to see a Hooters girl diving for a liner. Instead we get this chick booting a grounder. JUMP!
Remember Brewers superfan Front Row Amy, the beautifully well-endowed woman sitting behind home plate that took the Internet by storm during the Brew Crew's 2011 playoff run? Of course you remember Amy. Dumb question. Anyway, she's back and wants you to offer you the opportunity to experience as baseball game from her perspective. From her seat at Miller Park. JUMP!
The folks at NESN announced today that the Jenny Dell sideline reporter era officially begins tomorrow for men who used to be infatuated with Heidi Watney. You can officially turn your attention to Dell during tomorrow's game on NESN. That's right, NESN is alerting press that they're unveiling a new baseball sideline reporter. It's that big of a deal. Dell's Twitter account sits at 10k followers. Expect that number to explode. JUMP!
Former Red Sox/Yankees/Rays/Tigers center fielder Johnny Damon may not be playing ball these days, but at least he has something to keep him busy. He has a gigantic house in Florida. And when we say gigantic, we're talking about 29,000-plus square feet. So, while he's waiting for someone to offer him a contract, he can wander around his new home, which he'll probably get lost in. If you're an MLB team, that's why he isn't answering the phone. He's lost. JUMP!
Some of you might remember back in November when we warned you that Busted Coverage would be putting our unwavering support behind the Cal softball team during the 2012 season. The reason was simple: infielder Jace Williams is one of the coolest athletes in college sports. That's her, 2nd from right. Yes, fools, Jace is a bikini smokeshow but she's also one of the key players on this #2 ranked Cal team. Did we mention the ladies just got back from Hawaii? JUMP!
It's amazing how good we are at discovering sideline reporting talent and then watching that talent flourish into the future of sideline reporting. Take Meredith Marakovits. Way back in 2010 BC was telling readers about this East Coaster who was tearing up the sports scene whether it was in Philadelphia or New York. A couple years later and she's getting Kim Jones' job at the YES Network, according to the network. JUMP!
Ladies, it's your lucky day if you've ever had dreams of marrying the man of your dreams at home plate at Rangers Ballpark. Not satisfied with a reception inside the ballpark? Not satisfied with the standard fan tour where you get to visit the lockerroom and sniff the same air as Josh Hamilton? The Texas Rangers have the ultimate fan experience. How cool would it be to sit behind home plate and taunt your buddy who's about to get tied down? JUMP!
Miguel Cabrera's face will look differnt the next time you see him doing interviews on ESPN. A solid guess is that he'll need 3-4 stitches to close the gash under his right eye that resulted via a Hunter Pence during today's spring training game against Philadelphia. A bad hop, and sunglasses, played a role in Cabrera looking like he'd been in a UFC fight with Jon "Bones" Jones. Like a stuck pig. JUMP!
Former Los Angeles Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton now pitches for the Kansas City Royals, which isn't a good sign for the trajectory of his career. We now have to wonder if his weight has anything to do with this. We never realized it before, but Broxton is one fat bastard. He weighs in at 300 pounds. We know this thanks to teammates Everett Teaford and Tim Collins, who stuffed themselves into one leg of Broxton's pants. Think they're sending a message? JUMP!
You know why people in Florida are so crazy? Because they have nothing going on all day besides drinking, laying on a beach or sitting at the ballpark in the 9th inning of yesterday's Tigers-Mets game in Lakeland. Seriously, look at how many people are still captivated by a meaningless game filled with scrubs. Just loaded with old people and losers wasting time between job interviews. At least we get a foul ball video out of this. JUMP!
